Mauritius: New rules for taxi drivers operating in front of hotels on the island

Taxi drivers who operate exclusively in front of Mauritian hotels, with some located in the East of the island threatened in late June to begin a hunger strike within a period of two weeks, were apparently heard  by the authorities governing the sector.
Exasperated against the unfair competition of which they are victims, disgruntled taxi drivers blame several of their taximen colleagues, and other drivers of private cars as well as vans that were depending on them for authorisation of type voucher * to return directly to hotels and motels to meet clients.
New regulatory measures should soon came into force to ban any preferential treatment and written authorisation for accessing hotels, as indicated by the newspaper L'Express of Mauritius.
As a reminder, according to the taxi drivers, these practices denounced for several months by a large part of the profession did not respect the agreement between the association of taxis of hotels and ministries of Transport and Tourism.
